Lavenham has been chosen to host one of a new series of talks about rules, regulations and new funding opportunities for the agricultural industry.

The events have been organised by a number of agricultural bodies, including the Community Land Association (CLA), the Environment Agency and Anglian Water.

The Farm Business Update, which is free to attend, is due to come to Lavenham Village Hall on February 11.

A spokesman from the CLA said there will be various presentations from the organisers advising land managers on farming industry updates.

“The importance of water resource protection at a local level and the grants and funding streams available to farmers and land managers will also be covered,” he said.

“This year’s keynote speaker is Philip Wright, who has been involved in the development of machinery for cultivation and tillage for over 30 years.

“His presentation will focus on lessons learned from his soil husbandry visits and on-farm discussions on machinery choices.”

Places can be booked online via the CLA website.
